Lung Foundation Australia reminds GPs to register for exacerbation prevention program

It’s not too late to register for our Have the CHAT campaign aimed at increasing awareness of COPD exacerbations and promoting best practice management in primary care.

The ‘CHAT’ acronym highlights common symptoms associated with a COPD exacerbation:

  • Coughing more than usual
  • Harder to breathe than usual
  • Any change in sputum (phlegm) colour or volume, and
  • Tired more than usual.

Health professionals are invited to register online and download resources to help in the management of COPD.
